Holiday Rental House
Simore Peak occupies 3 acres of land on a hill. It is surrounded by picturesque mountains and coconut farms of North Sulawesi, in between Manado and Gorontalo. From here, the Sulawesi Sea and an island are just a blink away. The nearest village is around two kilometers, connects by a dirt road. This is an ultimate getaway destination at a reasonable rate. Please note that we are located in Mokoditek, a village in North Bolaang Mongondow Regency. It is around 3 hours drive from Gorontalo airport and 6 hours drive from Manado airport. If you’re looking for a fancy place, this won’t be the right one. The hut facility is pretty basic, rustic, and traditional. But if you want the luxury of having privacy and authentic experiences in a beautiful natural setting, then look no further. You’ll ...Simore Peak occupies 3 acres of land on a hill.

The nearest village is around two kilometers, connects by a dirt road. This is an ultimate getaway destination at a reasonable rate. Please note that we are located in Mokoditek, a village in North Bolaang Mongondow Regency. It is around 3 hours drive from Gorontalo airport and 6 hours drive from Manado airport. If you’re looking for a fancy place, this won’t be the right one. The hut facility is pretty basic, rustic, and traditional. But if you want the luxury of having privacy and authentic experiences in a beautiful natural setting, then look no further. You’ll have no electricity, TV, and wifi — it is time for digital detox. You’ll be too busy enjoying the nature anyway. Thanks to the natural cool breeze, you won’t need AC/fan. There are LED lamps for night usage and power generator is available for clean water supply. The bathroom is detached and a typical Asian — with squat toilet and a big bucket. Cold water only. Simore is surrounded by farms so there are chances for you to meet the wildlife. You’ll see crows and eagles flying around the site, so do the spiders and insects. Don’t worry, they are harmless and it is a sign of a healthy eco system. We only host maximum of 2 guests per night so you can enjoy the entire property for yourself. You will get keys to your room, your desk, and main entrance. You can just relax and feel the breeze, do yoga, or read on the swing. In a clear night, you can do stargazing and make campfire. There are rosewood, teak, and papaya trees in the garden, along with some flowers and herbs. The rate includes breakfast and fresh coconut. Anytime you want coffee, tea or water, please find it in the kitchen. If you need something and we are not around, you can reach us through phone or email. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE.

There are basic cooking amenities you can use - It is recommended to pack light, wear outdoor outfit and footwear. Don’t forget your sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses too! - If you want to swim, please wear wet suit instead of bikini because it considered more appropriate.

Interaction with guests
You will meet us upon arrival. Most likely we will be on site in the day time and the night security guy will sleep in the living room if you don’t mind. It’s very safe here but it’s good to have him around in case you need something. Please understand that when we are around, we’ll need to use the bathroom and kitchen. We are quite flexible in terms of interaction with guests. We would love to talk to our guest, get to know your culture and so on, but we can understand if you need some space. Feel free to tell us if you want a complete privacy. It’s your holiday, so you better enjoy it the way you want. We also provide home-cooked meal, transport arrangement, and actvities, such as cooking class and trekking (additional charge).

About the neighbourhood
The area is beautiful, non-touristy, and located on the main route between Gorontalo and North Sulawesi Province.

This is also an ideal destination when you need a break from the daily routine, want quality time with your precious one, and thinking about reshaping your life. We will send you the exact coordinates once the booking is confirmed.
Getting around
Public transport is limited so it is better to rent a car or a motorbike taxi. Please inform us in advance so we can help you with the booking.
